The Defence Academy - College of Management and Technology (DA-CMT) is a British postgraduate school, research institution and training provider formed in 2009 from five departments of the Defence Academy of the United Kingdom, and as such part of the British Armed Forces. Since 1984 Cranfield University has been the main academic provider of the college. A November 2005 contract extends the Cranfield relationship with DA-CMT to at least 2027. The college is based, like the majority of Defence Academy institutions, at MOD (Ministry of Defence) Shrivenham, located between the villages of Shrivenham and Watchfield in the south-west corner of Oxfordshire (Vale of White Horse), close to the border with Wiltshire, and has training centres around the country. DA-CMT facilities at Shrivenham are run by Serco Defence. The departments are: Centre for Defence Acquisition and Technology, Centre for Defence Leadership and Management, Defence School of Languages, Nuclear Department and the Defence Technical Officer and Engineer Entry Scheme.

The college traces its history to a school founded in 1772 to provide technical training for the military. In 1840 the Royal Artillery Institution was founded to train artillery officers ‘for the study of science and languages’. It was established as a response to the technological advances brought on by the Industrial Revolution. During the 1880s, the institution expanded, becoming the Ordnance College while the advanced classes formed the Artillery College, and a Commandant was appointed. In 1927 it became the Military College of Science. After World War II it moved to its current location in Shrivenham. In 1953, the newly crowned Queen Elizabeth II granted the college its “Royal” title and it remained the Royal Military College of Science until the founding of the College of Management and Technology.
